Approx Age: 4-5 years
Tibetan Mastiff mix
The beautiful Liona is a Tibetan Mastiff (DNA results 87.5%) originally rescued in Castro Valley and now being boarded for Dusty Paws Rescue at a facility near Fresno. Large dog owners experienced with the breed are welcome to consider her for adoption. Her age is estimated between 4 and 5 years. She is sweet, sensitive and smart.
Liona is a lot of dog - her boarder calls her 120 lbs of confidence and provides these insights: she is a loyal and devoted companion. For this reason it takes her about a month to settle in to a new environment as she tends to want to leave and find her way back to the people who have been her caretakers. Once you have her trust, this devotion will transfer to you. When a bond is established she will absolutely protect what she considers hers - her family, her home, her yard. Because of her protection instinct, Liona should go to a home where not many visitors, especially children, are expected.
Liona has been called "a couch potato at heart" who will chill after a short exercise session. She does love to play with other dogs, and is quite a sight when she is romping around. A home with another dog as companion and playmate would be great for her. Her preference is active medium-to-large male dogs. She will not do as well with other large female dogs.
Liona is spayed, micro-chipped and up to date on vaccinations.
